The February meeting got off to a cracking start with three new members joining us to discuss Valentines related themes. Some writers read their original poetry and prose covering the whole range of love including devotion to biscuits! Others shared beautiful classics from the likes of Elizabeth Barratt Browning or more modern words from the pen of, for example, Carol Ann Duffy. The group considered the relevance of quotes to inspire our own writing. It was a lively and inspiring meeting. News was shared of the group’s application for membership of the National Association of Writers Groups.
Our next meeting will be at Newby and Scalby Library and Information Centre on 8th March at 7:15 where we will be reading through newly created writing based on the theme ‘A silent house by the sea’. £4.00 for non-members – but membership is open and we very much look forward to welcoming new members and non-members alike.
